Whipped Feta Bruschetta is a delicious, bite sized appetizer! A creamy, whipped feta and parmesan cheese base topped with a fresh, tangy tomato topping!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 French baguette (A thinner loaf, not the thicker Italian bread)
  • Olive oil, salt and pepper for seasoning the sliced bread before toasting

For The Fresh Tomato Topping:

  • 1 pound grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, sliced into ribbons (chiffonade)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh black pepper to taste

For The Whipped Feta:

  • 6 ounces feta cheese
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Fresh black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Make the tomato topping by cutting the tomatoes into bite sized pieces and adding to a bowl. Add the garlic, shallots, balsamic and champagne vinegars, fresh basil, salt and pepper. Stir together and then place in the refrigerator for at least a half an hour to chill.
  3. Slice the baguettes into 1/2″ thick slices and place on a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and then season with salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Turn and bake another 3-4 minutes on the other side until toasted and lightly brown. Remove the crostini from the oven and set aside.
  4. Make the whipped feta by adding the feta, parmesan cheese and cream cheese in a food processor. Pulse a few times, then add the lemon juice and olive oil and fresh pepper to taste. Since the feta and parmesan cheese are both salty, we don’t usually add salt to the whipped feta topping, but you can season to taste.
  5. To Assemble:  Take a toasted baguette and top with a good layer of the whipped feta. Add a mound of the fresh tomato topping to the crostini and place on a platter. Repeat with all the toasts, or assemble a few and then let your guests make the rest on their own so the toasts stay crisp.
